If you’ve been involved in a collision, and if you’ve suffered injuries, you should contact a car accident attorney. There are many different laws applicable to automobile accident cases and you’ll want to ensure your rights are protected. Depending on who caused the accident, there are time limits and deadlines to pursue your case. If you miss deadlines, you may miss out on a recovery. Additionally, dealing with insurance companies can be challenging. Keep in mind that the insurance company for the motorist who caused the crash is interested in paying you as little as possible to settle your claim.
